Karl Rove lost it last night with the tea party victory in Delaware. Rove outed himself as one of those Kingmaker types that Phyllis Schlafly talked about in her book, A Choice Not an Echo The amazing thing is that he back a candidate that is backed by a George Soros group as discussed in this Michelle Makin post .

Bush was the worst thing that happened to the conservative movement of the party, which is why I never want to see another one of them run for president in my life…not unless they reject the family legacy when it comes to party politics. The tea party express is that kind of grassroots movement that Reagan effectively rallied and we can thank Sal Russo (Simon's manager-nemesis to Rove) for giving us "choices and not echoes".
Rove exposed himself for who he really is: a RINO operative.
